Weight loss is hard...right?
Tuesday, June 29, 2010      3 comments

Then why, at this very moment, does what I'm doing feel so easy? I've had two GREAT days in a row eating wise. I haven't been able to exercise because my hip has been off, but I've made really good food choices and resisted temptation. I weighed... Read more

Back to blogging

Well, it's been over a year since my last "little update" blog and I figured it was time to start up again. I've been shy about blogging in the past, but my cousin has been keeping a healthy living blog and I think I'd like to try and do it on a... Read more
Just a little update
Wednesday, March 25, 2009      3 comments

It's been a little while since I wrote a blog, so I thought I'd write a little update. Some things have been going great, and others could use some improvement. I'm currently four pounds away from my March goal with six days we'l... Read more
It's a marathon, not a race

So this week didn't go as well as I hoped it would in my last blog entry. I fell apart about mid-week, got sick and didn't make it to the gym, and then had a whole weekend of overeating--we're talking hot dogs, barbecue, donuts, cake--I went out... Read more
Just some goals I thought I'd share

Now that swim season is over, my diet is changing. Workouts are now on my own and I have more flexibility in my food. So, for this week, I want to make a goal of working out six days. It seems a little lofty, especially because I'm getting a bad... Read more
This new thing I'm trying
Tuesday, February 03, 2009      2 comments

So I'm trying this new thing where I don't let one bad day completely derail me. I had a great January, lost eight pounds, and feel like I actually learned a lot about nutrition and what I'm putting into my body. I was even consistently in my ca... Read more
A very sad day

I spent most of the day on Sunday in conversation with a man who does not know he is dying. My boyfriend's uncle has been battling lymphoma for two years now, and we recently received news that the cancer has spread to his brain. The doctors are... Read more
A fun (healthy) weekend!

So every time I start to focus on this weight-loss journey, the weekends always seem to be my downfall. This weekend there were a lot of things going on, so I was nervous the whole time, but I managed to keep my game up and I'm actually excited ... Read more

This weekend I had a swim meet in Atlanta, which meant that I pretty much had to eat what was available to me or provided for me. I tried to do the best I could, but there were definite slip ups, not to mention since I was swimming so much, I wa... Read more
A wake up call

I'm writing for the second time today because despite my motivation this morning and my great day yesterday, I still slipped up big time. I more than double the amount of calories that I was supposed to eat today, and I did it knowingly and on p... Read more
What a difference it makes

I had a great day yesterday, worked out almost four hours (swim practice for two hours, ellipticalled for an hour and then did weights and abs during my tv time:) and ate healthy and protein packed food. I stayed in my calorie range, drank my wa... Read more
Healthy eating AND thinking

So yesterday was day one of the revitalized Sparklife. I was feeling really good about myself today because I did a great job sticking to everything yesterday and was excited to have equally as good a day today. While Christmas shopping, a great... Read more
I disappeared for a bit
Monday, August 25, 2008      0 comments

But now I'm back. The last few weeks of summer got very hectic and I made every excuse in the book. While I didn't do awful on my eating and exercising, I did stop sparking, which means I didn't do as well as I could have. I'm thankful that I di... Read more
I'm doing it again
Sunday, July 13, 2008      1 comments

My last blog entry was about how I was re-energized after falling off the wagon, and I guess I'm here again. I'm feeling kind of down because I wish I hadn't even let it get this far and had stayed re-energized to begin with, but I know I'm not ... Read more
